This review is from: Nefertari's Tarots (Cards)
You know you have something very special when you get these in your hands. Digital scans will not do them justice and you need to see them to believe them. The theme is ancient egypt but you don't need a PhD in Egyptology to be able to interpret them. Each card comes alive every time you look at it. These do not follow the traditional Rider Waite imagery and yet, the way they have been painted, the position characters are in, symbols, colours etc all work together to yield the meaning of the cards even if you are not the most advanced reader.
The images are printed in colour but placed on a background of gold foil which makes this the most sumptuous deck that I have seen yet. The titles and the numbers of the cards are also printed on gold foil, which, set against the jet black background of the rest of the card, means that they stand out beautifully. I can't do them justice describing them in words, they have to be seen to be believed.
I personally believe they give very powerful and indepth readings and the egyptian theme adds to the mystique and atmosphere of these beautiful cards. They are becoming very difficult to get hold of thus I am trying to source a second copy so that I can have a collectors deck and a working deck. Beautiful and you will not regret the purchase - if you can find them!!
